L ORD, may the leaders of your church live blameless lives. Keep them faithful in marriage, and may their children be believers who don’t have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. Enable the leaders of our faith communities to live blameless lives. May they not be arrogant or quick-tempered. Keep them from the temptation of becoming heavy drinkers. May they not become violent, or greedy for money. Rather, may they enjoy having guests in their homes and showing hospitality. May they love what is good. Help them to be self-controlled and upright. Guide them so that they live devout and disciplined lives. Keep their belief strong in the trustworthy message that was taught to them.
Then our leaders will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.
LORD, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Based on Titus 1:6-9
